Recognising dedication and passion
Explore Leaders are the best in the business. We like to show our amazing leaders that we know they're crucial to the success of each individual trip we run and we simply couldn't function without them. The Explore Leader Awards recognise those leaders who have made your adventure extra special.
First prize is £1500 and 3 Runners-up prizes of £750 each – with 50% going to a charity of the Tour Leader's own choice – either a registered charity or a local project in the area they work in. This year we hope to bring all four to the UK and they will visit us here at the office!
Although there are no individual categories, there are four main criteria the judges use when making their decisions:
1. Local knowledge
2. People skills
3. Organisational skills
4. Respect for local people, culture and the environment
Have you had an outstanding Explore leader that you feel has displayed all of these qualities? Nominate them for the Explore Leader Awards to help us reward their talent and dedication.
Voting has closed for the 2023 Tour Leader Awards but you can still make your vote for the 2024 awards.
